Very Simple Winter Woodland Mini Card

Here is my first mini WW card. I like these little embellisments so I will probably be using them a lot on my winter cards.
The background striped paper is from the Martha Stewart school days multimedia pad. It is striped blue and white on one side and blue on the other side. The card is approximately 7 1/4" x 4 1/8" (unfolded). The embellisments are cut at 2". I used some ribbon to tie around the card for texture...and added stickles in Aqua, Cotton Candy and Star Dust.
I used my SU! spots to ink the edges for added dimension.

Here is the list of supplies needed for this project:

Winter Woodland Cricut Cart


  • Auqua

  • Cotton Candy

  • Star Dust

Double Sided Patterened paper




  • Pixie Pink

  • Tempting Turquoise

I decided to make a church for my son's room. I hand cut the vellum for the windows. The church is cut at 4" - and can be found on the Winter Woodland cart.

I embossed the bottom of the church to make it look like it was rock on the bottom. I colored the textured with my SU! watercolor pencils.
I put a rechargeable tealight inside. Looks like I need to cut a hole in the roof so the light shines through to the steeple.

Paisley Owl Card

I made this 4 x 4 card using my NEW Cricut Paisley cart.

The card is embossed using a CB snowflake folder. I inked it with my SU! stampin' spot - temping turquoise. I cut the "cartoche" from the Sweethearts 4". Next, I embossed it with CB Swiss Dots folder. The owl is cut from Paisley at 2".

I used brads for eyes, ribbon around the cartoche and stickles for some bling.

Orignially, I wanted to make this mainly white...white card with the blue cartoche and a while owl but that didn't look this is what I ended up making.

I cut the charm from George at 10" - blackout feature.

The green circle was cut at 7 1/2". (George)

Patterned paper was cut at 6 1/2. (George)

The Snow Friend was cut at 6".

I used my SU! white craft ink pad to ink the snowman, then I embossed him with Snow glitter.

Snow Friends Family Frame

Wow, how much fun are these Snow Friends?

I made this family tonight...not planning to frame it, but once I had the thought - I had to see what it would look like. I am sooo happy with how this turned out.

I cut the Dad at 10", Mom at 8", boy at 6" and girl at 4". I used brads, CB embossing, inking...the paper is all Bazzill - it has a shimmer to it...bought it from Ms today...2/1.00.

Snow Friends!

I made these for my kids - used the Cricut Snow Friends Limited Edition cart.

The boy snow friend was cut at 6". It's hard to see the inking around the edges...but in person it adds some dimension.
The girl snow friend was cut at 3 3/4". I embossed her hat and inked the edges. In place of the paper buttons - I orignally emobossed them and used those, but then decided a snap would be I brought out my Crop a dile and added the snaps for buttons. I also used Accent Essentials to cut the square scallop at 5 3/4".

The patterened paper is part of the "makingmemories tinsel" pack. I found it at Target.

My first Snow Friend

I finally received my Snow Friend cart! WAHHOOO!!!!

Here is a card my friend Audra and I made together. She picked out all the colors and assembled him. I think he is adorable!!!! The background patterened paper cam from "makingmemories" tinsel 8x8 specialty paper pack.

We cut Snow Friend #9 at 4 1/4" and placed him on a 4 x 5 1/2 card.

No Cricut bag.
My husband helped me create the template for this box /bag. It is 10 x 10 before folding. I lost inspiration for this project but still wanted to complete it, so there is not a lot of inking for one thing.

I embossed the bag using the Fiskar plates...that's hard work compared to the CB - I free handed the white around the top of the bag - then embossed each with the CB.

I cut the handle with my straight edge, it is 1" - I taped a piece of ribbon on this strip of white paper and then taped it to the inside of the bag.

The bow on the front was a suggestion from my husband.

School Themed Calendar

I am making this 8 x 8 calendar for my son's teacher. It is very simple. No Cricut far I have completed Jan, Feb and some of March. I think March will be complete with 1 embellishment.

The "To Do" on January came from Ms. It is from a "Sticky Journal Stax - School". The graph paper on Feb is also from this stax. The star on Feb. is hand cut - I used a CB embossing folder to emboss a red piece of paper, then I cut out the star from the embossed image. Last, I inked the star with white SU! ink. I used silver brads to make the paper look like it is pinned in the cork paper. "School Days" on March is cut from chalkboard paper I found at Hobby Lobby.
I would love to have an apple embossing folder...guess I will have to make one with my Cricut and a cereal box.
